Why I Wear Make Up Tag


1. When did you begin to love & wear make up?
I can't remember a certain time when I suddenly realised I loved make up. It's always been a love affair but I have no idea where the love came from. I have no older sisters and my mum never wore make up but she did  have a make up bag and I can always remember playing with this thick blue/silver eyeliner pencil and frosty pink lipstick. Very 80's! From about the age of 4/5 I would ask for makeup but of course I wasn't allowed to leave the house wearing it. I started wearing lipgloss and mascara to school when I was around 13/14 but didn't start wearing a full face untill I was around 17/18 I think.

2. How do you feel without make up?
Up untill recently I would always be bare faced apart from nights out but now if I'm going into town or anywhere where I know there will be lots of people I have to atleast wear concealer and mascara. I have really bad dark circles and get a bit paranoid about it. This probably sounds really sad but there's certain days when the thought of going bare faced makes me want stick a paper bag over my head.

3. What do you like about make up?
Where do I start?? Just standing at a make up counter makes me feel happy. There's so many different brands, finishes and colours to choose from. It helps me look a bit more alive and covers up anything I want to hide. It boosts my confidence like nothing else can.

3. Holy Grail items?
Liz Earle Brow Pencil in 'Fair'  instantly springs to mind. It stays put all day, matches my brow colour like nothing else and the texture is perfect - not too soft and not too hard. I can't think of any other make up items that make it into my Holy Grail list (there's always room for improvement) but Chanel Illusion D'Ombre 'Emerveille'/Urban Decay 'Sin' are two of my most reached for eye shadows and YSL Touche Eclat is one product which has always been in my make up collection.
